A few months ago we had the pleasure of doing a family portrait session for Che Puan Sarimah Ibrahim and her husband Tunku Jamie Nadzimuddin, together with their daughter, Tunku Sofia. With different backgrounds to choose from and few outfit changes, we got to capture many casual and intimate moments that the family share in their lovely home and around the compound.
Darrel and Andrea work in Singapore while their son, Julien lives with his grandparents in Kuala Lumpur. They come back to KL every weekend to spend time with him. “We take Julien out as much as possible to expose him to the outside world,” Andrea told us.
The day they came to our studio for photos was to celebrate Julien’s first birthday. Kids grow up so quickly, and this was a great way to remember everything about him at this age. His laughter, his small hands and feet, and how comforting it feels to hold him in their arms.
Weekends like this are really precious for them. “It’s always hard to say goodbye when we return to Singapore. We’ll bring him to Singapore when he’s slightly older,” Andrea says.
Meeting Darrel, Andrea, and little Julien reminds us how a photographer’s job is never just about taking pretty photos. It’s about bringing meaning to people’s lives and supporting them on the journey with their loved ones. Thank you for giving us this privilege. More photos below! Continue Reading
It all began when Amy contacted us for her maternity shoot. We soon found out it involved not just one mummy, daddy, and toddler as well… but eight people in total! Amy and her girl friends were about to have almost the same due dates and they wanted to capture this moment in photos together with their husbands and toddlers. What an experience for them, and for us too! They brought two sets of matching outfits, a few tiny props, and it became this uniquely wonderful “friends-maternity-family” photo shoot!
Dear faithful readers, past clients, supporters, and friends,
Spending the past one and a half months in uncertainty and adjusting to a new normal has not been easy for everyone. We’ve been thinking of all those who are greatly affected, and our hearts and prayers go out to them as we go through this challenging time together.
As for our business, many photo shoots were cancelled with almost no new bookings for the rest of the year to follow. Scary times for us for sure. But understandably, it’s because of the nature of our business and the fact that personal health and safety among our clients and our staff is priority.
Meanwhile our team (Chi Yin, Abel, Sarah, Wai Teng, and myself – Grace) continues to keep our spirits up by encouraging each other. Many of us are learning new things and expanding our skillset. We’re also keeping the conversation going on social media by sharing our favourite photo collections from before – something to remind us all to smile and appreciate our loved ones even when we’re stuck with them 24/7!
Another encouraging note to add this week is the announcement of the Conditional Movement Control Order. With that, we are ready to open our studio and photography services again but following certain conditions. We will ensure health and safety measures are in place according to the Malaysian government’s advice and this how we will be operating:
The Singapore Botanic Gardens made the perfect backdrop for Kelvin and Francine’s family photo session. The colours and outfits they wore looked amazingly comfortable, making them feel comfortable as we moved around the park too. Don’t you just love how these shades of blue, khaki, and cream complement each other and the whole photo?
The session also involved extended family members: Kelvin’s mom and sister, and Francine’s brother and her parents. We love how they also used colour to differentiate both sides of the family, and yet unite them harmoniously. Of course, the one who really stole the show has got to be their son, Caleb. This little lad warmed up so easily and was clearly the life and energy of the party!
